Thankfully, you don’t need to spend all your salary to pleasure yourself or your partner. We’ve rounded up ten of the best homemade sex toys so you can spice up your sex life without breaking the bank.

Most men have at least one tie knocking around their closet, so the next time you and your beau want to experiment with bondage, tie yourself up, literally! Ties are a great substitute for handcuffs, and the soft fabric also prevents chafing. Win-win.
Another staple of most men’s wardrobes is a good leather belt, which means your partner already has the perfect replacement for handcuffs or restraints. Plus, is there anything hotter than watching a man whip off his belt and tie you up with it?
Yup, you read that right. The next time you’re sick of using just your fingers to masturbate, head to the kitchen and grab yourself a soup spoon. Warm the metal between your hands and then rub the round part of the spoon in a circular motion on your clitoris. You can even use a little coconut oil as lube.
Few things are better in life than getting off in the shower, and if your shower features a removable showerhead, you’re golden. Find a comfortable position leaning against the shower wall or sitting on the shower floor and direct the spray of warm water on your clitoris. Combining the relaxing sensation of warm water with clitoral stimulation is a recipe for the perfect orgasm.

Interested in engaging in some spanking, but worried it might hurt? Start out with a spatula. It will be a great enough sensation to pleasure you, but won’t cause lasting pain like a hand can. Just make sure the spatula is clean, and wash after each use.
I cannot be the only woman with at least 12,000 scrunchies scattered round my living space, so if you’re overloaded with hair ties, put them to use! The next time your guy is over, slip one onto his erect penis. The tightness of the elastic can help him maintain his erection longer, which is a boon for you because longer sex=more orgasms.
Sure, you could splash out on a silk blindfold when you’re in the mood for domination, but why do that when you can repurpose a pair of those holey tights from last winter? Tights also make great restraints, so keep them in your BDSM arsenal.
Fruits and vegetables are an important part of a healthy diet, but they also make great bedroom accessories. Rather than splashing out on a state-of-the-art dildo, wrap a freshly washed cucumber or banana with a condom and slip it inside you. The sensation is the exact same as with a normal dildo, but you can get this sex toy on your weekly grocery run.
Not a fan of fruit or veg in the vag? Try using the handle of your hairbrush. Hairbrush handles generally have interesting textures on them, which makes the experience of slipping them inside you all the more fun. Just make sure to wrap the handle in a condom and wash with soap and warm water after each use. Also, make sure to clean the hair out of your brush before you go to town, because no one likes their feel-good session interrupted by a ball of hair.
Sexual pleasure doesn’t need to be expensive. Find which one of these everyday household items works best for your sex toy needs, then pat yourself on the back for saving money while still getting yourself off.
